What is a Palliative Care Consult?
A palliative care consult refers to a specialized medical service that focuses on enhancing the quality of life for patients facing serious illnesses. It involves a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs to develop an individualized care plan. Palliative care consultants work collaboratively with the patient, their families, and the primary medical team to address symptoms, manage pain, and provide psychosocial support. The aim is to improve comfort, relieve suffering, and ensure optimal patient-centered care throughout the illness trajectory.
